    Is your computer ALREADY infected with dangerous Gameover Zeus software? Virus could be lying dormant in thousands of American computers

    The dangerous cyber pandemic known as Gameover Zeus could have infected thousands of American computers and be lying dormant gathering data, experts say.

    The malware, which the FBI estimates has hit between 500,000 and one million computers worldwide, has resulted in users losing tens of millions of dollars.

    Gameover Zeus, which experts say is 'sophisticated' and capable of evading anti-virus software, infects a user's machine when they open a PDF or click on a link sent to them in an email.

    Once it is set up on the computer, Gameover Zeus will intercept all financial transactions and rewrite them, so that payments made by the user will be redirected into other accounts.
